Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

The inside of my air conditioner is full of mildew. When turned on, it spits out small pieces of black mildew. The odor is very obvious. I cleaned the louvers (as much as I could reach) with a Q Tip and sprayed the inside with Tilex Mold and Mildew Remover. That helped, but the mildew continues to build. The air conditioner is in my bedroom and since I have asthma, this is not good. I have a Fedders in my living room and have never had this problem with it. The Haier is only two years ol

We have a fujitsu reverse cycle air conditioner. Last night when we went to turn it off with the remote it did not respond. We needed to turn it off at the switch outside the house. We replaced the batteries in the remote. We get a display on the remote but it does not appear to communicate with the air conditioner. The air conditioner continued to send out warm air when we swithed it back on from the outside. We then found a manual on / off button under the inside flap of the wall mounted sys

I have a Sharp portable room air conditioner model CV-P10NC. The power plug RESET button and TEST button will not click in order to check out the power plug as the unit will not turn on. They did test O.K. at first but the unit would still not come on. Can the power plug back be taken off to check out the fuse inside - or since it is a type of built in circuit breaker maybe it does not have a fuse inside ?

Goldstar r0501m I have a GoldStar R0501M Air Conditioner mounted in a window. The issue that I'm having is after a few days of (non-continuous) use, enough water builds up inside the machine that the fan starts audibly splashing through it. I cannot see any sort of drainage hole on the outward-facing half of the machine, and have been resorting to tilting the whole air conditioner to drain the water through the power cable hole. How is it meant to be drained?

When I try to run the air conditioner it sounds like it's trying to cut on and then it stops. It tries this over and over. One time I heard a very loud pop come from inside of it while it was trying to cut the air conditioner on. I have left it on fan since. Any idea what this issue is....?

We have a Fujitsu ASY-40UIM3 air conditioner here in Spain. We had to move the outdoor unit yesterday and since then we cannot get it to work. We are looking for error codes to help locate where the problem lies. The red light on start up goes off and we have a flashing green light (timer maybe?) that continues to flash at regular intervals. This outside unit was moved by a qualified engineer and the air-con worked perfectly up until the move. We cannot get heat or cold air.


There are two things that can cause this.\015\0121. Is the high voltage line energized. Is the power coming to the unit, make sure the disconnect is not tripped or manually shut off or pulled out and reversed. Check that the circuit breaker ... Air Conditioners

Noise I just bought the 8000 and 10000 BTU Frigidaire air conditioners just before my move and have found that they are very noisy (especially the 8000 BTU unit). The sound of the air flow is very noisy and the 8000 BTU unit also seems be have a slight irritating whining noise. I was thinking about taking out the three screws I saw on the side of the unit in hopes of getting the front off and attaching some cloth or something inside to make it quieter.

I have a new motorhome and the air conditioner only reduces the inside air temperature by 2 degrees on a hot day. e.g. outside air temp 26 degrees inside temp 29 degrees. After 2 hours of a/c running with door and windows shut inside air temp is 27 degrees. Dealer says the air conditioner is ok as air coming out of ducts is 3 degrees as required. I believe a larger a/c is required.


Can you tell me what size/make of motorhome you have? Certainly doesn"t sound right to me, and I've been working on them for over 15yrs. Whether it's a 13,500 BTU or 15,000 BTU, it should be plenty as long as motorhome has any insulation at all. I a ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

My Fujitsu Converter Air conditioner is not working... The Green light is flashing 13 times - the red light flashes continuously very quickly. The fan does not commence at all and therefore no heat or cool air comes from the conditioner at present.

Hello, We bought a Perry Home in Georgetown TX last March and it is still under its two year warranty. Our air conditioner stopped cooling today. It has been working well for over 1 year. We came home from work and the temperature is 86F inside and climbing. My wife left the house at noon and the temp was 76F (where we keep the thermostat in the summer). The Air conditioner outside unit's fan is operating and no noise. The inside blower is running normal - no problem. The model number on the o

During extremely hot days water drips from inside of air conditioner--it is 24000 BTU-- most water drips through outside as it is supposed to but some drips inside is it the pitch of air conditioner? -if it were tilted more or is this normal condensation--it's not a lot of water but it wets the rug under it--it's been installed through the wall

We purchased a Whirlpool portable air conditioner in 2005 from Best Buy. Near the end of last summer the air conditioner started leaking water. We started using it again this season and it is still leaking. When my husband drained the water out of it, the water came out of the upper part of the back side of the air conditioner and no water was coming out of the drain at the bottom. When it appeared to be empty, we plugged it in and used it again and it continued to leak water on our carpet.


Check to see if the drain is blocked by particles/debris of any type. Also make sure that the unit is level--as level as possible. I have my Whirlpool Portable AC in 4 inch bed risers so I can drain it really easily. I slip under a small low rise p ... Whirlpool Air Conditioners

My air conditioner will not turn on. (See below for a more detailed description.) I recently bought a used Kenmore Room Air Conditioner Model 580. 76129. It worked well for about a month (running almost continuously, usually on either energy saver or cool). About a week ago, I walked out of my room when the air conditioner was on, and it was off when I walked back in about an hour later. (The display was unlit, and it was not making noise.) The power button still does not work. The outlet

Does this unit dehumidify the room in which it is running, or just the air from the intake? As I understand it this dual hose air conditioner does not interact with the air inside the room it is cooling other than blowing the room air over the compressor to cool it...though I think I just answered my own question, as the humidity would condense on the compressor from the air inside the room, while the dual hose is designed to get rid of heat without creating a vacuum. Thanks.


Yes it does. Whenever you cool air, you reduce the amount of water vapor it can hold. As a result, if you are cooling room air you are automatically removing some of the moisture from the air as well. The condensate is probably re-evaporated into ... Air Conditioners

I bought a haier electronic control air conditioner model HWR10XC6 on 6/30/08. I installed it. When I try to use the cool mode the air conditioner will only blow out cold air for about 5 - 10 minutes and then it just blows out regular air as if its on fan. I did what the manual said to do and it still continues to do this. I can't get it to blow out cold air for a longer period. Its getting really hot in here.


Hi,\015\012 It sounds as if the compressor (that provides the cooling) is cutting out due to either a faulty thermostat or is itself overheating.\015\012\015\012Obviously check the thermostat is able to move between it's minimum and ... Haier Air Conditioners

I have a Dometic 15,000 btu, ducted air conditioner in my 30 ft fifth wheel. It seems like the unit has never cooled very efficiently. Dealer has checked out. I noticed yesterday, outside air over 100 degrees, that the air conditioner would put out good flow of cool air, but once in a while compressor would stop running even though not close to thermo setting. Fan would continue running. Any suggestions?


Not sure what the pressure sensor should ohm at but i would suspect a faulty sensor if everything else checks out. Its very common for these sensors to exhibit issues when they get hot. Also you may have a filter in the system that may be restricte ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

I have a Mitsubishi split air conditioner; Model number: MSH-18NA. When I turn the air conditioner on with the remote control, sometimes it works normally, sometimes it doesn't.
